I am drawn to ordinary scenes that are magically transformed by the light falling across them. I loved the two larger boat shapes and their reflections in shadow contrasted by their sunlit decks and the light from the sky reflected on the water. Working in an alla prima method, using broken color, and expressive brushwork, I look beyond the literal interpretation of a scene to capture the spirit of my subjects. I don’t try to tell the whole story, just what is important to me, then encourage those who see the work to “finish” the piece for themselves making each painting more personal to the viewer. My goal is to share the joy I feel when creating a painting with those who view my work.
